Why Does Prostatitis Cause Constipation?

Constipation is mainly caused by the dysfunction of large intestine peristalsis, feces stay in the intestine for too long and become dry due to excessive absorption of water. 
If you have constipation for the long term, the toxic substances in the feces will be absorbed by the intestinal mucosa, spread all over the body with the blood, headache, insomnia, skin itching or acne, etc. But for patients with prostatitis, prostatitis will cause constipation, and patients need to pay more attention.
Simple constipation is caused by the disorder of intestinal function, which is often caused by the aging, malnutrition, chronic consumptive diseases, pregnancy, overweight women who are not fully rested after childbirth, the recovery period of patients with enteritis and dysentery and the lack of crude fiber in the food, so that the intestinal mucosa is not stimulated enough by the food residue, and the cerebral cortex is not enough to produce the sensation impulse of defecation reflex and so on.
For patients with prostatitis, if the prostate is congested for a long time, it leads to enlargement of the prostate. It will cause defecation resistance to increase, resulting in constipation.
In addition, when constipation patients are taking bowel movements, they need to increase abdominal pressure to promote defecation, which will further cause pressure on the prostate, causing discomfort in urination, and sometimes even white drips after urinating will occur, that is, the outflow of prostate fluid.
Although the prostate envelope is tough, it can prevent the invasion of bacteria and toxins from surrounding tissues. However, modern anatomical studies have found that there are 2-6 hemorrhoids and reproductive veins between the rectum and the prostate, so bacteria and toxins from the rectum may enter the prostate through these hemorrhoids and reproductive veins, leading to the occurrence of prostatitis.
Especially when constipation leads to high rectal pressure and poor excretion of bacteria and toxins, it is more likely to cause or aggravate prostatitis. If patients with prostatitis have constipation, they should first pay attention to home remedies, adopt reasonable diet habits, such as increasing the content of dietary fiber, drinking more water to strengthen the stimulation of the colon, and develop good defecation habits, avoid forced defecation — besides, increasing activities is also helpful.

People with constipation should gulp down water and swallow quickly so that the water can reach the colon as soon as possible, stimulate the bowel peristalsis, and improve the symptoms of constipation.
